Great Food, Quiet atmosphere – My wife and I went there a few days ago, and it was great. The service was outstanding, they were very attentive. The food, and beer selection was good, and their wine selection was great. We got to sit anywhere we wanted, and it was just a nice relaxing meal. The price is a little steap, but nothing more than any other nice restaurant.
Go with the burgers – Had a delicious burger (Rio Burger- I like them well done)), good beer and an excellent cheese plate here. Our table didn't really try anything adventurous from the dinner menu. It's more of a bar than fine dining after all. No live music on the night we visited, which made for a decent atmosphere judging from other reviews. Service was friendly and helpful. The menu is a bit confusing as the burgers and sandwiches were listed on the ?lunch menu?, but I asked and the server let us know that those were available for dinner as well.
Overpriced and overhyped – We were disappointed all the way around: wine, dinner, and dessert. Almost everything on the menu (from appetizers to entrees) featured creme (for some reason the correct spelling is on the block list?) and gorgonzola, so unless you want a very heavy meal the Barrel House is a non-starter. We opted for the chicken breast, creme and cheese on the side, but without those condiments the food was tasteless. The staff was at best superficial, and rather than thoughtful recommendations based on you meal, we were simply offered the most expensive glasses. For dessert we tried the creme brulee--can't screw that up can you? It tasted as if it had sat in a stale refrigerator for too long. On the plus side, the portions are relatively large--call the cardiologist.
(how this rating comes out to a 7.6 is beyond me????)
